RovoCam camera w/ RovoRX-SDI
S/N: K0302617 / K0303154
Used. Cosmetic 8/10
|The AJA RovoCam is a compact 4K
UltraHD / HD block camera. The HDBaseT interface provides video,
power, stereo audio, and RS-232 over a single Cat 5e/6 cable that
can be up to 100 meters distance. This signal is sent to either
the RovoRx-HDMI or RovoRx-SDI receiver. This is built around a 4K
(Sony FCB-ER8300) camera module with back illuminated 1/2.3"
CMOS sensor and Sony image processing. UHD at up to 25/29.97 fps
and 1080P at 50/59.94. The high quality 12x optical (20x digital)
zoom has autofocus and manual focus capability. Can plug-in a 3.5mm
microphone via the rear connector and mount to top cold shoe.
Small size but rugged construction with limitless mounting possibilities
- ideal for tripod, studio, stage, conference room, security,
broadcast, cinema, corporate, and any use you can think of. Compatible
with NC-UNIHB/1 Outdoor Housing.
Image processor functions include: noise reduction (2D/3D), visibility
enhancer ICR (day and night) slow AE, high sensitivity, gamma,
character generator, defog, color enhancement picture effect,
spherical privacy zone masking, e-flip, and more.
The free RovoControl software (compatible with MacOS, Windows,
and Linux) allows you to control multiple RovoCams - with control
of things like zoom, iris, focus. You can even treat this like
a PTZ camera by moving a HD 1080P box around the UltraHD frame,
allowing pan and tilt for HD output. You can also map and control
via PTZ controllers or even video game controllers and USB joysticks.
The RovoRX-SDI is a receiver for HDBaseT signal that converts
to 4x identical 6G-SDI / 3G-SDI output, functioning as a DA (distribution
amplifier). Also has 1x HDMI UHD / HD output. Also communicates
and powers the RovoCAM over HDBaseT and via computer of choice
with RS-232. It even has a stereo audio output.
This includes the RovoRX-SDI receiver, power supply, Cat 6 cable,
USB cable, and RS-232 to USB adapter cable. There is some cosmetic
nicks and paint wear on camera, mainly on edges. One REF IN connector
on the receiver has a chip in it, but still functions normally.
Overall this system is clean and presentable. Fully tested and
in excellent working order. This includes the RovoCam and the
RovoRX-SDI receiver for less than the retail pricing of the RovoCam
Alexa Plus XT cinema camera
S/N: 8970 (K1.71310.0)
Used. Cosmetic 8/10
| The Arri Alexa XT Plus (K1.71310.0)
is like the standard Alexa Plus, but has a Open Gate and 4:3 capable
Super 35 sensor. Shooting ARRIRAW Open Gate gives you a frame size
of approximately 3.4K with a 1:1.55 aspect ratio. 4:3 is ideal for
using anamorphic lenses. The full area of the sensor is used and
a much higher image quality retained - the magic that anamorphic
lenses provide is rendered faithfully and fully in the digital image.
This can also be used in 16:9 mode just like any Alexa, so it's
versatile even if you're not using anamorphic. This has the exceptional
film-like organic image the Alexas are known for with extended clean
highlights, low noise floor, natural skin tones, excellent color
separation, and cinematic depth. Extremely rugged and reliable build
with ergonomics and easy usability well considered. Form factor
ideal for balanced shoulder use and on tripod.
The newer Alexa Plus models have all the features of the Alexa
Classic EV, but adds features such as: Arri wireless lens control
system compatibility, electronic horizon, lens mount has LDS contacts
(lens data system), extra monitor BNC out (1.5G HD-SDI), GPS function,
lens synchronisation for 3D, a third RS accessory power output,
built-in position and motion sensors, and quick switch BNC connectors.
Can record in HD / 2K ProRes up to 4444 and HD DNxHD. This has
the newest SUP 11.1.1 which allows 3.2K Pro Res at 16:9 (which
is easily upscaled to 4K / 3.8K UHD). Can do internal ARRIRAW
2.8K and 3.4K Open Gate.
This has the XR module which uses capture card drive such as
Codex CDX-3730. But can also use SxS Pro / Pro+ cards if adapter
CDX-3790 (K2.48838.0) is installed. Can also work with qualfied
SanDisk Extreme Pro CFast 2.0 card with use of adapter K2.48839.0.
Maximum frame rates are: 16:9 ProRes HD at 120fps, 16:9 ProRes
2K at 60fps, 16:9 Prores 3.2K at 30fps. 16:9 ARRIRAW at 120fps,
4:3 Prores at 48fps, 4:3 ARRIRAW at 90fps, Open Gate ARRIRAW at
75fps. Some reduced frame rates at 4:4:4 when using SxS media
instead of CFast 2.0 or XR capture drive.
Additional features include: 14 stop dynamic range, EI 800 base
sensitivity (160-3200 range), Log C / Rec 709 / DCI P3, audio
recording over 5-pin XLR line level input, surround view, false
color exposure check, peaking focus, color bars/tone, and much
Includes EVF-1 viewfinder with eyecup, KC 151-S long length
viewfinder connecting cable, VMB-2 viewfinder mounting bracket,
V-mount battery plate, CCH-1 center top handle, WA-1 wedge adapter,
and VCT-14 mounting plate. This does not have shoulder pad installed,
though does have velcro for attaching one. This will ship in a
hard case for extra protection (not pictured). The case is not
in very good condition, but will provide extra protection in transit
and is considered a "bonus" item. Cosmetically in acceptable condition
for a professionally used Alexa - with just some paint wear, touchups,
and scuffs on body - but no damage or indications of rough usage.
Overall very presentable. Newest Sup 11.1.1 installed. This has
a reasonable 2882 hours of use. All features, functions, sensor,
connections and included accessories are tested in excellent working
AJ-HPX3700G 2/3" P2 camcorder
Used. Cosmetic 8/10
|The AJ-HPX3700 is a 2/3" 1920x1080
P2 HD Varicam camcorder, the flagship model of the P2 line. Ideal
for cinema/film-style applications and ENG/broadcast purposes as
well with it's shoulder form factor. Variable frame rates from 1fps
to 30fps for overcranking and undercranking. Record in AVC Intra
100, AVC intra 50, or DVCPROHD. HD video formats at worldwide standards
such as 1080 at 23.98p, 24p, 25p, 29.97p, 30p, 50i, 59.94i. Additional
features include: dual link RGB 4:4:4 output with log response capability,
cinegamma and advanced image enhancing functions including Film-Rec
gamma, dynamic stretch range, chromatic aberration correction, electronic
shutter and unique angle settings (similar to film camera), five
P2 slots, grip handle with 5 threaded holes for accessories, three
HD-SDI outputs, scan reverse, dual rear 3-pin XLR (w/ phantom power
available), front 5-pin XLR mic input, compatibility with VCT style
tripod plates, and much more.
the upgraded AJ-CVF100G premium 1" color viewfinder. High resolution
LCOS display for critical focus. No image blooming with peaking
turned up. Accurate display of motion blur. Peaking, chroma, contrast,
brightness controls. Also can work in black and white. This is a
huge upgrade from the standard AJ-HVF21G viewfinder that will breathe
new life and functionality into your P2 camcorder.
Includes the very valuable AJ-CVF100G color viewfinder instead
of the typical AJ-HVF21G. Accepts Anton Bauer gold mount style
batteries. Front microphone not included. Some cosmetic paint
wear around body, but overall gives the impression of being clean
and presentable. The LCD has some shadowing/splotches in the image
and a small dead pixel cluster. These issues are not super noticeable
and do not affect the recorded image. The LCD is not used for
critical viewing like the viewfinder or SDI output, which both
work perfectly, but rather basic footage review and menu navigation
- so the minor LCD imperfections do not affect normal functionality.
Operation hours of 136x10. Power on times 4496. Which is reasonable
usage for a solid state camera. Good optical block with pixels
properly masked at various gains when camcorder fully warmed up.
The image and all functions/features are tested in great working
Epic-X Dragon 6K DSMC camera
Used. Cosmetic 8/10
|The Red Epic Dragon is a digital
cinema camera capable of 6K (75fps at full frame and 100fps at 2.4:1).
Also capable of 5K at 96-120fps, 4K at 120-150fps, 3K at 150-200fps,
and 2K at 240-300fps. This DSMC camera brain has the Dragon sensor,
providing improved color science, greater dynamic range up to an
amazing 16.5+ stops, better signal-to-noise ratio for clean images
from 200-2000 ISO, improved low-light capability over the older
Mysterium-X sensor. Redcode RAW files give you the ultimate freedom
and control when finished. Capable for professional use for cinematography
or still photography. Highly flexible and customizable so you can
have just what you need for your production and nothing you don't.
And of course features all the professional connections and features
one would expect from a high end cinema camera. Different lenses
such as Canon EF, Nikon, PL, or Leica-M can be acheived by changing
the lens mount. Control is acheived via Red Side Handle, Redmote,
and/or Red Pro Touch LCD monitor. This records onto Red Mini-Mag
SSD media. Designed to accept interchangeable optical low-pass (OLPF)
filters for different shooting situations. Power is acheived via
a compatible AC power supply, Redvolt in the side handle, or v-mount
/ goldmount battery system with battery plate designed for Red camera.
Includes mini-mag side module (takes the current mini-mags, not
the older/larger 1.8" Redmags). Also includes Ti PL mount (titanium
construction for the heaviest/longest lenses), DSMC side handle
(providing grip, Redvolt usage, and camera control), 2.0 fan upgrade
kit installed, and skin tone highlight OLPF filter installed.
Also has AC power supply and side handle cover plate for when
handle removed. The LCD is not included, only pictured to show
the hour readout. As long as you have any HDMI monitor that will
display the Red menu overlays, you don't strictly need a Red Touch
LCD. The included side handle can access all parts of the menu
- with a few features that need to be assigned to keys as desired
such as playback controls. No additional accessories included
beyond what is pictured.
Cosmetically in good condition with some paint wear and minor
chips / scratches on exterior. Latest firmware version 6.3.106.
Hours of use are 2701, so it has seen some professional usage,
but this realistically is not significant for this well-built
and reliable Epic Dragon. The internal battery that keeps the
accurate date/time code has been replaced. This is dead on most
of these sold and often not mentioned. The battery is located
deep inside and is not easily replaced, so this is a good value
to have this already done. PL mount has some tabs added to it
for ease of lens attachment. All functions, features, connections
are fully tested with a PL lens and mini mag installed, to ensure
this is in excellent working order.
Raven 4.5K Dragon EF brain
Used. Cosmetic 8/10
| The Red Raven is a great way to
get into the Red DSMC2 ecosystem. Featuring a Dragon sensor with
16.5+ stops of dynamic range. Record 4.5K up to 120fps or 240fps
at 2K. Can record Redcode Raw (R3D), Apple ProRes, and Avid DNxHD.
Has an integrated Canon EF mount and records onto Red Mini Mag SSD
media. The DSMC2 is highly customizable with a variety of I/O expander
modules, jetpack, battery plates, monitor, side handle, support/rigs,
etc. Note that you need a module for a/v connections, DC, or battery
power. The cheapest way to gain power is via something like the
DSMC2 Revolt XL module. If you wish to use a Touch LCD, the new
4.7" can attach directly. But you can also use a Lemo Adapter A
to use DSMC1 Touch LCD or viewfinder with a cable isntead of direct
connection. This also has wifi control to control from smartphone
with apps like FoolControl. Excellent as a main camera to get into
the DSMC2 ecosystem or as a B camera (it uses the same accessories
as the models such as Weapon 6K/8K, Scarlet-W, Dragon-X, Gemini,
Helium, and Monstro.
This includes the brain only with fixed Mini Mag module and EF
mount. No accessories such as monitor, expander module, mini-mags,
etc are included. The latest firmware 7.4.1 installed. This has
low usage with 444 hours logged. It has a few scuffs/scratches
around body (mostly on bottom), but overall is clean and presentable.
This was tested here with modules, monitor, EF lens and minimags
to ensure it is in proper working condition. Everything works
HVR-A1U HDV camcorder
Used. Cosmetic 8/10
| The HVR-A1U fits many professional
features in an small "handycam" form factor. 1080i switchable between
60i and cineframe 30P / 24P with 2:3 pulldown. This is NTSC, not
PAL. Features include: C-MOS imager, HD to SD downconversion, cinematone
gamma and cineframe functions, switchable hdv/dvcam/dv recording

still images onto memory stick, and much more. Output connections
for monitoring or live output include: HDV/DV firewire / i.link
IEEE 1394, component HD / SD, composite. This doesn't have HDMI,
but one can always gets a component to HDMI converter for example
if they need that. Many use this as an affordable studio / live
/ streaming camera into a mixer, if they do not want to record onto
HDV tape. It is extremely compact which makes it useful in a variety
of situations where larger cameras are impossible.
This includes XLR adapter, remote, ac adapter / charger, long-life
battery, component/av cables, manual (not pictured), lens hood
w/ integrated cap. This does not include external mic. Good cosmetic
condition with some exterior scratches from transportation, not
from usage because this has low hour meter readings. The hood
shows a bit of extra wear because it came from a different camera
with more usage. The previous owner did etch the serial number
into the bottom of the camera. Clean LCD screen. Good lens optics.
Hours of use: drum 0x10, tape 0x10, threading 5x10, operation
1x10. So this has had under 10 hours of actual usage, which is
quite rare indeed. All functions, features, connections, tape
transport are tested in good working order.
HVR-V1U 1080P HDV camcorder
Used. Cosmetic 7/10
|The HVR-V1U 3CMOS HDV camcorder
packs a lot of big features in a small package. Captures video at
24P, 30P, and 60i - processed at 1920x1080/60p in full 4:2:2 and
recorded as 1080/60i (24P recorded with 2:3 pulldown). This is NTSC
only, not PAL. Records onto miniDV / HDV tape. Many professional

manual or automatic control of iris/shutter/focus/zoom/gain, HDMI
and i.link interfaces, XLR audio, ClearVid for clear diagonal lines,
integrated ND filters, picture profiles, focus peaking / zebra functions,
SteadyShot, color bars, gamma settings including Cinematone Gamma,
black stretch/compress, knee correction, versatile ergonomic design
for handheld or tripod use, and much more. Many use this as an affordable
studio / live / streaming camera into a mixer, if they do not want
to record onto HDV tape.
Low hours of use: Operation 50x10, Drum 15x10, Tape 11x10, Thread
37x10. 150 drum hours is very low usage. Includes ac adapter/charger,
small eyecup, av/component cables, and mic holder. This includes
battery, but note it is a generic model, not genuine Sony battery
(it does still work but full life not guaranteed). Cosmetically
this camera has some scratches and scuffs in various places on
the body. There is also some cleaning scratches on LCD, which
are only lightly visible when in use. It's not perfect looking,
but it is overall presentable and clean. Optics are clear and
without scratches. All functions, features, connections, tape
transport are tested in good working order.
PDW-F800 2/3" HD camcorder
Used. Cosmetic 8/10
| The Sony PDW-F800 XDCAM HD422 is
the standard bearer of 2/3" broadcast ENG camcorder. Adds many new
features and updates to the previous PDW-700. Equipped with 2/3"
HD CCD, capable of recording 1080P at international frame rates
(including 60i, 50i, 24P, 25P) and different bit rates - to find
just the quality, format, and run time needed. Records onto single
and dual layer discs at MPEG HD422 at 50Mbps - the 4:2:2 color space
allows more versatility and latitude in post production. Can undercrank
and overcrank between 4 and 60 frames, for fast and slow motion.
Power HAD CCD and 54db signal to noise ration, smear level of -120db
- all adding to high quality and wide dynamic range. Other features
include integrated ND filter wheel, DVCAM downconversion and iLink,
loop recording, thumbnail scene selection, HD-SDI output, HyperGamma.
And of course all the functions, features, precise audio/video customization,
and ergonomic capabilities you'd expect from a professional shoulder
mount ENG video camera.
Includes the valuable HDVF-20A viewfinder, a high quality 2"
HD viewfinder. Has extra resolution to provide ample detail for
discerning focus over cheaper viewfinders. Features contorls for
zebra, tally, display/aspect, focus peaking, contrast and brightness.
This includes the HDVF-20A viewfinder. The normal tripod front
plate has been upgraded to a more robust one with 15mm rail/rod
support. There is moderate paint wear around the body, most noticeably
on the top of the handle, front of viewfinder diopter, on rod
support, and a vertical line on right side of body. But overall
this looks cosmetically clean and presentable compared to most
example of a used PDW-F800. The LCD has a couple minor scratches
in the protective window, but aren't visible when viewing normally
(plus the LCD on this is not for critical viewing anyway like
the viewfinder or output). Upgraded to the latest great version
3.2 firmware. Hours: Operation 3208, Laser 1413, spindle 2444,
loading 3738. The most important reading is laser hours. These
are rated at 6,000+ laser hours, so 1413 laser hours means only
moderate usage. Good optical block - pixels are correctly masked
by the APR function, when camera is warmed up. All functions/features
are tested in good working order.
